Fatal I-94 Motorcycle Accident in Kalamazoo

0 Comment

I saw a story on the news over the weekend about a tragic and Fatal I-94 Motorcycle Accident in Kalamazoo on Thursday, August 13th. According to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff, the biker was eastbound on I-94 when traffic allegedly slowed down abruptly and he was unable to slow down in time before running into the car in front of him. He sustained serious, life-threatening injuries and was taken to Borgess Hospital where he later died. Police are still investigating this accident.

I am very sorry to hear that this tragic motorcycle accident happened. My condolences go out to the family and friends of the biker.
